This B&B is at the luxury end of the market. It is very clean, no dust no odours just immaculate. Above all the hosts are very genuine friendly people and really do make you feel at home. Its a brilliant quiet place to chill out.

We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at the 'Waters Edge'. The room was fantastic and well worth the five stars. The attention to detail was just so spot on. We had fantastic views across the Firth. Bill & Gill were invisible, as all good hosts should be, but we knew they were there if needed. I could not fault the... More

We have booked with Bill & Gill every year since 2008 and always have a lovely stay. The room, view and breakfast are all fantastic and the hosts are some of the nicest people we have ever met. We hope to see you both again next year and thank you once again for another memorable stay.

£150 for a Highland B&B? Well actually it's more like staying in a beautiful room in a friend's lovely home, complete with a magnificent balcony overlooking the water, a scotch and shortbread on arrival and a great breakfast in the morning.

We stayed at this B&B for one night and were so impressed with every aspect of our stay. The room with it's own balcony and "hidden" bathroom was stunning, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you might need including fresh fruit, bathrobes, binoculars, etc. In fact, it was better equipped than many a five star hotel. The location is excellent,... More

Stayed for 3 nights & it was perfect. Gill & Bill are delightful & so helpful. The location is stunning, our room was beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, Gill & Bill had thought of everything even down to little details like an umbrella in case it rained.

When we go on holiday we always say that we don't want to be less comfortable than we would be at home. Our delightful hosts made sure that everything was above our expectations and all their little extra touches made our stay exceptional. The large terrace with sea view was an added bonus. Thanks a lot Gill and Bill.

My husband and I travelled around Scotland for two weeks this month and stayed in many hotels and B&Bs. Water's Edge was our favorite. The house has been beautifully renovated and decorated. Our room was comfortable and luxurious, as well as immaculate, and had a big bathroom. We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the large balcony, with... More

We chose to stay here after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Water's Edge surpassed our expectations. Bill and Gill are wonderful hosts, friendly but very relaxed. We stayed two nights in room 2 and greedily drunk in the view from our balcony. Yes, the weather was dry and mostly sunny while we were there but that merely enhanced our... More
